Everton have some representatives in Barcelona today, and they are doing the business. Just a few days after securing Lucas Digne, it now appears that they will come home with both Yerry Mina on a permanent transfer and midfielder Andre Gomes on loan.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Gomes has joined Mina at the medical facility in advance of his likely move to Goodison Park. Enjoy the rough English translation:
Yerry Mina and André Gomes are finalizing their exit from Barça to sign for Everton. Regardless of the two clubs are defining the details of the agreement, in principle Yerry goes pierced and André Gomes ceded, the two players are undergoing medical review at this time by the set ‘toffee’ in a hospital in Barcelona.
We can argue about Gomes’ overall quality, but there’s no question that he provides a different look to Idrissa Gueye in the number eight position, and also represents an upgrade - however slight - on Tom Davies. Now, we wait.
